    ok i know i should have an ATI card but in the meantime can anyone help with this problem
    im noticing very strong artifact distortion using windvd5
    to be honest its not as good as picture from dvd player apart from the loss of jaggies.
    i built system myself about a year ago and components are pretty good
    do you think this is a software or hardware problem?(ie will an ati be that much better?)
    system is connected to a z2 via dvi and 1:1 scaled correctly
    thanks

    Could be your card. The 4200 is the lowest spec out of the GF4 Ti range. I'll be selling my top of the range Ti 4600 in a few days as I've just bought a Radeon 9800 Pro:D
